Double-double Olympic champion – Elaine Thompson-Herah strutted on the catwalk recently during New York Fashion Week.

It was a dream come true for Elaine Thompson-Herah, who ran a lifetime best of 10.54 in Eugene, Oregon on August 21, the birthday of Usain Bolt, who was also on display at the fashion showcase that featured a number of Puma-signed athletes including US sprint phenom Abby Steiner.

“Top gal. Country gal. Dream of walking the runaway finally came through. Thanks, @puma and @winnieharlow for some modelling tips backstage. I love you…too sweet,” the five-time Olympic gold medallist posted on Instagram on Tuesday night.

The 2022 Commonwealth Games sprint-double champion was styled by designer June Ambrose.

When he walked, Bolt thrilled the audience with his signature ‘To the World’ pose as he exited the runway.

On August 17, Thompson-Herah revealed her ambition to walk on the runway in a post on Instagram when she said “Modeling is not just beauty and smiles, it takes boldness and style. Another dream I want to pursue.”

New York Fashion Week began on September 9 and ends on September 14.
